How A Work Injury Can Change Your Life

Work injuries can have significant and lasting effects on your life. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may experience chronic pain, limited mobility, or permanent disability. This can affect your ability to perform everyday tasks and enjoy physical activities. Northwest Return to Work (NWRTW) is a unique facility that offers a wide range of treatments specifically for injured workers. Providing outstanding care for all work injuries, simple or complex.

How A Work Injury Can Change Your Life

Dealing with a work-related injury can lead to emotional challenges such as depression, anxiety, or feelings of isolation. Coping with pain and the disruption of your daily life can be emotionally draining. The Structured Intensive Multidisciplinary Pain Program (SIMP) at NWRTW helps clients develop self-awareness and find strategies to improve their psychological well-being. We do this by helping them learn effective self-management techniques.

Work injuries can limit your ability to participate in social activities, hobbies, and other things that once brought you joy. This reduction in quality of life can lead to feelings of dissatisfaction and frustration. We know that an injured worker’s mental health is just as important as their physical health. An injured worker who is depressed or experiencing psychological complications can take longer to recover. The longer they are off work, the more their anxieties increase.

Medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages due to time off work can create financial stress. In some cases, individuals may face bankruptcy or loss of assets due to overwhelming medical expenses. If your injury prevents you from performing your job, you might be at risk of losing your position.

This is why we provide a holistic approach to our rehabilitation, focusing not only on our client’s physical injuries but their overall health and well-being. Psychological injuries need the same level of assessment, treatment, and fast re-engagement back into the workplace, which can be complex if someone feels that work contributed to their injury, or their employer is not supportive of their psychological needs.

Most rehabilitation facilities only offer single discipline services, but when someone is injured at work their needs can be more complex and can require specialized treatment. At NWRTW, your rehabilitation team is made up of a diverse group of medical professionals, all in one location, working together on your behalf, because we understand that a work injury can change your life.

We work collaboratively with Washington State Labor and Industries and other insurers to help you navigate your injury, with the goal of getting you back to work.

We’ll help you every step of the way by working with You and your employer, claims manager, medical providers, and other professionals involved in your claim. With one goal, to get you back to work and back to life.
